Kirstie Simson

Kirstie Simson: Kirstie’s art form is her life practice, and she shares insights gleaned from forty-years experience of living dance improvisation. Kirstie draws from her knowledge of contact improvisation, dance techniques, the Alexander technique, Aikido, meditation and her mature understanding of improvising as performance. Her work explores the huge potential of the body’s response to the primal urge to move, inspired by the energy released through human interaction, physical challenge and a daring to go beyond inherent ideas of limitation. Her current questioning pertains to the relevance of artistic practice in today’s troubled world. www.kirstiesimson.com


Darrell Jones

Darrell Jones has performed in the United States and abroad with a variety of choreographers and dance companies such as Urban Bush Women, Ronald K. Brown and Min Tanaka. He continues to have long-term collaborative relationships with Bebe Miller Company and Ralph Lemon. His artistic research has found its central focus through a conversation between his postmodern training and the voguing aesthetic. Through years of experimenting and analyzing oppression as it lives in the body, Darrell seeks to excavate how individuals accumulate identity and mirror culture through movement.
